Inter-species analysis. Boxplot of residuals of empirical data with respect to model predictions for inter-species comparisons. Firmicutes have significantly smaller residuals than other taxonomic groups (p=0.0022) and are mainly pathogens. A weak but significant association of pathogenesis with instability exists in the Proteobacteria (p=0.042).
